For Traders and Asset Managers, Puerto Rico's Tax Incentives Are a No-Brainer

By: Nick Giambruno

Whenever I see the words “life-changing opportunity” or something like that, I immediately dismiss it as a lame gimmick or hyperbole.

And while I am truly reluctant to use those often misused words, I can honestly think of no better way to describe Puerto Rico’s tax incentives for traders, hedge funds, private equity firms, and asset managers of all stripes.

This is truly a life-changing opportunity for them, and that’s not BS.

By the end of this article, you’ll see why.

It’s not for no reason that investment legends like hedge fund manager John Paulson and Nick Prouty have planted their flags there. But you don’t have to be a big name to benefit too. As you’ll see, obtaining Puerto Rico’s tax incentives is really a no-brainer for anyone who makes their living off of capital gains.

But first, you need to understand a few things about the uniquely burdensome American tax code to see why this is such an unparalleled opportunity. [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract settled last Friday around 1,190 while currently trading at 1,223 this afternoon near a 6 week high as I’ve been recommending to sit on the sidelines in this market as volatility is way too high and the risk is also way too high in my opinion, however it does look to me like a bottom has been placed here in the short term with gold spiking from the 1,140 level last week and then rebounding around 100 dollars in the last 7 trading days which is incredibly impressive as the stock market is sharply lower this afternoon sending money back into the gold and precious metal sector. Gold futures are trading above their 20 but still below their 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is lower as I will remain neutral as the chart structure is awful at this time, however if you do think gold has bottomed my recommendation would be to buy at today’s price level while placing your stop loss below 1,186 risking around $37 or $3,700 per contract plus slippage and commission but the risk is too high & does not meet my criteria so I will wait for better chart structure to develop but I have to admit its sure fun to watch.

Are You Ready to Become a Full Time Forex Trader?

There is not a part-time trader out there who doesn’t dream of getting to the point where they can throw their day job to the wayside and trade currency from the deck of their pool. This is a legitimate fantasy that few will achieve, and for those that do it will be a hard road to get there.

There will be no chance of success at becoming a full time Forex trader until you honestly evaluate the following factors to see if it is viable in your situation:

Start Up Capital

How much is in your Forex account right now? $1,000? 2 grand? How much more can you add to it? Remember, pips don’t equal much when converted into cash and not even leveraging with that amount of money is going to make you self sufficient any time soon. Brokers don’t leverage more than what you have on hand to lose. [Read more...]

Economy Post-'Jobs’ Report; Real or Memorex?

Now it gets interesting because early in the bailout process the Fed talked about achieving certain employment milestones before hiking interest rates.  Here we are at the 10th consecutive month with 200,000+ job gains (321,000 in November) and the jobless rate down to 5.8% and still there is a question on when or whether ZIRP will be withdrawn?

Well I am a visual learner so I for one can never get enough pictures to inform my thinking.  Pardon the redundancy in this chart’s frequent appearances in NFTRH

The rectangular red box is zero interest rate policy (ZIRP), which is 6 years old this month.  If we play it straight we would be expected to believe what the mainstream believes, that the “Great Recession” is a thing of the past and that something built of abnormal policy can proceed per normal metrics and assumptions when abnormal policy is removed.  I don’t buy it.

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the February contract are down $16 this Friday afternoon in New York currently trading at 1,192 an ounce after settling last Friday at 1,175 with huge volatile this trading week with Monday’s trade going as low as 1,140 before rallying sharply hitting a 4 week high as the volatility is as high as I’ve ever seen it due to the fact that crude oil prices have plummeted coupled with a strong U.S dollar as I’m neutral this market and I’m advising traders to sit on the sidelines and look for another market with better chart structure with less risk. Gold futures are trading above their 20 but below their 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is mixed and I do believe that gold prices will continue to head lower as money flows will continue to head into the S&P 500 which is hitting another record high today but the volatility is too high and the risk/reward at the current time is not in your favor in my opinion. The month of December in recent years has been bearish as ETF selling in the gold has put pressure on prices as investors want to take a tax break on losing trades before the end of the year and I think that will continue this year as well as I still see no reason to own gold at the current time.

Gold Futures

Gold futures this Friday afternoon after the Thanksgiving holiday are sharply lower due to the fact that crude oil prices are down nearly $5 also pressuring the precious metals to the downside as gold in the February contract is currently trading down $29 at 1,167 after settling last Friday at 1,198 as I still remain neutral in this market as prices are trading above their 20 day but still below their 100 day moving average so avoid this market at the current time. In my opinion choppy markets are difficult to trade as the longer term downtrend line in gold is still intact in my opinion as a strong U.S dollar and S&P 500 continue to take money out of gold as the money flow continues to go into those 2 sectors as I still think there’s a possible retest of 1,130 in the month of December and if you remember in 2013 December was also a negative month to the downside as the stock market in my opinion will continue to climb higher throughout the rest of the year. The chart structure in gold is poor at the current time as prices have been choppy in recent weeks so look for a better market to trade and keep an eye on this and hopefully better chart structure will develop over the course of the next several weeks but I’m feeling that we will not be involved in the gold market until at least early 2015.

Every Day Is Black Friday In The World Of Forex

Gain the ultimate advantage with our FREE eBook "How to use the Wave Principle to Boost Your Forex Trading"

By Elliott Wave International

The foreign currency exchange market, known as forex, is the most liquid financial market on the planet -- liquid to the tune of $5.3 trillion traded per day!

That basically means every single day in forex is the day after Thanksgiving -- a.k.a. "Black Friday" -- with a stampede of traders pounding at the front door come opening bell, and then frantically racing up and down the market aisles in search of opportunities.

It's madness. Market turns are lightning fast. You have to be faster. You have one single goal: Get there before they're gone.

That goal, however, is difficult to attain if you're following the blueprint of mainstream financial analysis; which tells you to look outside the market for clues as to where prices will go next. The trouble with this strategy is that when you have your eyes focused outside the markets, you often miss high-confidence trade set-ups developing on the price charts themselves.

Take, for instance, the recent near-term performance in the euro/Canadian dollar exchange rate, forex name EURCAD. On November 20, the EURCAD took a nasty fall and continued slipping to a one-month low on November 21. Mainstream analysis identified the "cause" of the move after prices had already started to reverse: [Read more...]
